Prototype Nuclear Small Arms

wiki.eveonline.com/en/wiki/Prototype_Nuclear_Small_Arms

The flagship product of the Hearts & Minds Vox Populi Weapons Systems Line. Not really a prototype at all. The name was a marketing ploy to make the weapons seem more "authentic" because even the plans for them had been stolen. Fantastically successful, they are favorites of both revolutionary movements seeking to free oppressed peoples and terrorist fanatics bent on overthrowing everything decent.

I am at this moment patching my client so that I can begin piloting again. I have been away for over a year and will need to relearn piloting again. I'm glad I found this thread. It has a lot of links and info that I lost a long time ago. This thread also has a lot of info that I have not even seen. Thanks for this thread Praxis :)

Me, Myself and Plunder

wiki.eveonline.com/en/wiki/Me%2C_Myself_and_Plunder

A philosophical/ethical/strategic treatise to the effect that ethics might be analagous to chess in that there are are relatively few "pieces" capable of straightforward moves but that the combinations of these in particular circumstance are enormously dependant on context. Critical reception of this commonly concedes that the text is attributable to Praxis Astra (or a heuristic writing program constructing all his literary and technical works.) Most ethical commentators are quick to dismiss this as a work extolling nothing more revolutionary/evolutionary than enlightened self interest.

Hey foks. We're having a lot of fun doing something we hadn't expected to be doing quite so much of: training new players. Most of the players who come to us actually do not wind up being interested in infiltration. As it turns out we have plenty of places to play, not just spy v spy.

Feel free to contact me or our Alliance Director

It it was easy to play EVE everyone would be doing it.

This game is to other MMOs like chess is to Tic Tac Toe.

Non EVE players (I still know a few) ask me what I do when I play this computer game. I tell them I'm a teacher. They usually say something about not playing against the other players. Well, there's a thrill that can't be faked when pitting your skills against another player, to be sure.

If only. If only any of you were as dangerous to me as I am to myself. I think that would be something of a relief wouldn't it?

To all you new players who are making this so much fun: thanks for the leap of faith. Thanks for asking all those "dumb" questions that keep us on our toes. (Yeah, like we always have an answer, even a "dumb" one right?

Two days ago I was listening to some new players in Teamspeak.

"You know, " said one, "I heard so much about how hard this game is to play--that learning curve? But I feel like I blew that off by getting into Teamspeak."

More in that vein. All I can say is that I wish I'da thought of that.

Well not long ago, there was a person who told me: There is no "dumb" question, there is only the chance of receiving a "dumb" answer...

Do not use do do twice in one line of text.

Intresting links though, +1

One thing though, when renaming ships, if it's a Logi then just putting your toons name helps a bit for the logi chain.

Will read more later.


Use do do twice in one line of text? I do do that don't I?

Good point about the logi ship name but won't the enemy learn your name means logi and be on the lookout for you?


I say do do... but only when I'm AWK Cool

Very interesting read. Thanks

Hi everyone. Well its just about Back To School isn't it?

I just passed out the old fashioned copying books like the grade schoolers use (here in America at any rate). One each with a pen (no throwaways) to my RL friends.

A reminder that we're all in school all the time.

And a concession to modern sensibilities: the copy books I bought were not just black and white but also purple green and red and white. Surely its a world gone mad?

All this being a long winded way of saying welcome to all you new players.
